Operator Algebras and Applications: June 17 – 21, 2019

Organized by: Stefan Hollands, Vaughan Jones, Gandalf Lechner, Roberto Longo Since Heisenberg’s and Jordan’s “matrix formulation” of quantum mechanics about one hundred years ago, theoretical quantum physics has been a major incentive for mathematical research into operator algebras. The stimulus from physics has helped the development of this field, founded by von Neumann with the […]

Graduate Summer School on the Mathematics and Physics of Hitchin Systems: May 27 – 31, 2019

Organized by Lara Anderson and Laura Schaposnikco-organizers: Sheldon Katz and Joerg Teschner. The school is aimed at graduate students and young postdocs, and will expose participants to some current research topics on the geometry and physics of Higgs bundles. The workshop will have several mini-courses by experts on topics close to their own research, including a […]

Automorphic Structures in String Theory: March 4 – 8, 2019

    Organized by Terry Gannon, David Ginzburg, Axel Kleinschmidt, Stephen D. Miller, Daniel Persson, Boris Pioline   The purpose of this interdisciplinary workshop is to investigate connections between string theory, automorphic forms, mock modular forms, and beyond.Automorphic representations are part of the basic language of the Langlands program, while at the same time playing […]

Vertex Algebras and Gauge Theory: December 17 – 21, 2018

Organized by Sergei Gukov, Tomoyuki Arakawa, Boris Feigin, Alba Grassi, Hiraku Nakajima, Nikita Nekrasov, Andrei Okounkov Vertex operator algebras have a long history of interaction with physics by describing two-dimensional systems at criticality. More recently, they appeared, via BPS/CFT correspondence, in the context of higher-dimensional gauge theories and associated brane constructions in string theory. For […]

Geometry and Physics of Hitchin Systems: January 22 – June 21, 2019

Organized by Lara Anderson and Laura Schaposnik Hitchin systems have found remarkable applications in many different areas of mathematics and physics. In particular, Hausel and Thaddeus related Higgs bundles to mirror symmetry, and in the work of Kapustin and Witten, Higgs bundles were used to give a physical derivation of the geometric Langlands correspondence. Moreover, […]

Simons Summer Workshop: July 16 – August 10, 2018

This Workshop is the eleventh conducted by the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics at Stony Brook and the Sixteenth in the series Simons Summer Workshops. One of the predictions of string theory is that certain apparently consistent quantum field theories cannot be consistently coupled to quantum gravity—they do not arise from consistent string vacua. […]

Automorphic Structures in String Theory: March 4 – April 5, 2019

Organized by Daniel Persson, Terry Gannon, David Ginzburg, Axel Kleinschmidt, Stephen D. Miller, Boris Pioline The purpose of this interdisciplinary program is to investigate connections between string theory, automorphic forms, mock modular forms and beyond. Automorphic representations form a cornerstone of the Langlands program, while at the same time playing a crucial role in understanding the […]

SCGP_ GeometricalAspectsSupersymmetry v2

Geometrical Aspects of Supersymmetry: October 22 – 26, 2018

Organized by Manuela Kulaxizi and Maxim Zabzine Subject of the workshop: Supersymmetry and geometry are tied together in many remarkable ways. Over last 40 years these two fields have influenced each other enormously. Many new interesting geometrical constructions were motivated by the supersymmetry considerations, e.g. the hyperKahler quotiens, generalized Kahler geometry, generalized geometry, T-duality and […]
